Stone Enjoy By 05.04.16 Black IPA Releases This Week
IN A GALAXY NOT TOO FAR AWAY (A time not too long ago) – The seemingly sinister Stone Enjoy By 05.04.16 Black IPA by Stone Brewing has risen from sources of dark malted barley. Brewed specifically NOT to last, this immensely hopped black IPA refuses to rest until it makes the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs to hopheads in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at select retailers nationwide.
With the balanced support of pleasingly smooth malts, Vic Secret, Ella and (of course!) Galaxy lead the massive hop addition in this predominately Oz system hop profile. When combined and added, the hops produce nuances of dankness and tropical fruit qualities that are evident in the aroma, with a taste that is distinctively hoppy. This devastatingly dark force is out to restore freshness and appreciation to the black IPA subsect in cantinas and lairs across select parts of the known universe.
After a crazy first round of voting, our readers stepped up with even more online votes and hashtag check-ins through the #beerupbracket hashtag on Twitter. Round two of our Beer Up Bracket featured more blow outs and a few NCAA March Madness Cinderella stories. This contest not only allows voters the chance to cast a vote for their favorite brewery, but also stuff the ballots by sipping on your favorite brewers to register votes. This round also saw the addition of www.beercrafty.net to our guest panel as they participated in the voting and added their live feed to our streaming tournament action.
Sinfully dark and decadent, this stout rivals the riches of a Russian Czar

Nuclear Nugget Release Saturday March 26th
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Place: Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
The Nugget is about to drop. Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA is a delicious hop libation. It’s not delicate or subtle. What it is, is a hop head’s dream fulfilled. Nuclear Nugget explodes with flavor. Notes of citrus flowers from Centennial Hops and strong herbal and spice notes are added from Nugget hops. The fallout is somewhat subdued through the generous additions of local Virginia honey. Proceed with Caution. The Hour Draws Nigh.
My name is Phil Stratigis, and I've been working in and around the Rochester, NY beer scene for the past 6 years or so. I'm currently a bartender, server, and middle-type manager (basically I have keys and the ability to void things) at a joint called Lovin' Cup, which serves as a combination bar, restaurant, art space, coffee shop, and music venue. Sounds stretched thin, but we make it work.
We've been doing monthly beer socials at this spot for as long as I can remember. Actually, that's how I got familiarized with Lovin' Cup in the first place: as a youth prone to debauchery and poor decision making, I went there with some friends many years ago under the supervision of plastic bottle gin. One thing lead to another, and the next morning I woke up butt naked in an empty bed with tickets to a Brew Ha Ha featuring Brewery Ommegang. Fast forward, they hire me as a manager.
Anyway, the point is that these things, as fun as they are, have gotten stale over recent years of repetition. Heading into a 10 am meeting with Ballast Point to discuss our upcoming event, I was still a bit skeptical about how to make it more interesting. (Also, 10 am to a bartender is kind of a dick punch, let alone I just got out of a 9 am meeting with some folks helping to plan my annual disc golf tournament. Shameless plug because I'm writing this for free: www.RealBeerDiscGolf.com.) Ballast Point by itself sounds jazzy and cool on the surface to lots of folks, but considering their recent acquisition by Constellation Brands, a local Rochester company, every a-hole and their cousin was throwing tap takeovers with Pineapple Sculpin and Mango Even Keel. The one keg I did want, the tits-awesome Indra Kunindra (curry, cayenne, coconut stout OMFG so good) was unavailable to us at the time. Dick punch number two.
